absent. i mean, really, almost completely absent and silent during the fiscal cliff negotiations. so what do you think we're going to see out of him in 2013? >> certainly he's not where he wanted to be, which is working out of the white house, but, you know, i think he has been -- you're right he hasn't been maybe very vocal in terms of making press statements but he's somebody speaker john boehner looked it, when you're in the capitol, he's in huddles with other lawmakers and they definitely still respect. the idea that his reputation and brand was hurt rubbinning as a e president, i think a lot of the blame at the end of the day will be put on mitt romney. if you talk to republicans, they're already looking at what his prospects are for 2016 in terms of fund-raising and name recognition. >> all right. go ahead, krystal. >> i was just going to say one that i love on there that i will definitely be watching is elizabeth warren particularly now in the senate banking and finance committee. that will be a great one to watch in 2013. >> all right. great, fun with the salt here. anna palmer thanks. and look at that. the waterford crystal ball has arrived in times square just in time for our year-ender show tomorrow. how perfect is t

boehner are meeting to discuss the fiscal cliff. we are hearing the president's planning to present a smaller offer. for the latest, we bring in peter alexander from the white house and mike viqueira from capitol hill. peter, let's talk about what's going on at the white house meeting. i hear senators are optimistic about a mini deal which, of course, will raise taxes on those above $400,000. expand the amt, cut some spending. what are you hearing? >> reporter: well, hearing a lot of different things right now. one of the items and ruled by rumor and then denials and frustrations, toure. we know that we saw senators mcconnell and reid arriving a short time ago. we didn't pelosi and boehner arrive yet but the vice president joe biden got here a short time ago, as well. there's other reporting from the hill right now about the potential that the president is going to return to what was basically his original outlined plan. perhaps a smaller plan but a plan where the threshold would be set closer to $250,000 as he initially had before the $400,000 offer that john boehner the white house would contend walked away from when he proposed his $1 million threshold in this sit
